Taiwan-AGRICULTURE

Agriculture

According to the Taiwan's agricultural business office, there are more farmers than cultivated hectares (936,000 farmers for 871,000 hectares). The main cultures are sugar cane, rice and citrus fruits. The country also produces pineapples and bananas. Breeding has suffered from the repercussions of a pig epidemic which has prevented the marketing and the exportation of pigs during the years 1997-1998. The adverse farming sector amounts to about 3.5 billion dollars of imports, in spite of fishing catches well-developed with more than 1.4 million tons in 1996.
